The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has said that all health requirements to enter the Sultanate will be applied to the international travelers arriving into Salalah and Khasab airports who have received two approved vaccine doses, including the obligation to wear Tarrasud+ bracelet, adherence to the institutional isolation for non-Omanis and home quarantine for the Omani citizens for seven days.

These rules are effective from 5 pm on Friday, July 9, 2021, until further notice.

All Covid-19 vaccines used in the GCC countries have been approved for entering the Sultanate.

Omani citizens and residents of the sultanate who have received at least one dose of the approved vaccine in the sultanate (aged 18 and over) can travel on domestic flights to Salalah and Khashb Airports.

Travelers from abroad who have received the two doses of the approved vaccine are also allowed to travel to the two mentioned airports on direct international flights as well as the international passengers transferred on domestic flights.

The Omani residents of Dhofar and Musandam Governorates are excluded. GCC citizens may also travel to Salalah and Khasab airports if they have received two doses of the approved vaccine.

"There is no change so far regarding the protocols and decisions for those coming to the Sultanate," the Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed on Thursday.
